The report created by steering committee following up the compliance with OA mandate at the national level was presented by FECYT. The methodology and the limitations of the study and the steps forward for upcoming studies were the main issues addressed. Some of the steps forward to overcome limitations highlighted were the need to establish a project code structure at the national level besides the improvement on the identification and normalization of the funding information in repositories. Full text of the report is available to download in Spanish. Event recordings and event website also available.Lastly, and just to have some fun learning about open access, FECYT has developed a short video (English subtitles) that can be accessed through this link: https://youtu.be/uaO4tpE1svE. In this short video, Aitor Menta, one of the participants of the scientists’ monologues contest organized by FECYT (FameLab Spain), explains what open access is and how to fulfill the mandates.
